Oregano leaves are the dried, aromatic herb that has been used since ancient times. They can be finely chopped and added to dishes or rubbed into a dish before cooking for their strong flavor. Oregano is an interesting ingredient because it's one of those things with more than just one use! You may have seen oreganos on top of some pizzas in your lifetime but you probably didn't know that they're also great when sprinkled onto chicken breasts as well as being nice enough by themselves if served atop pasta sauce at dinner time.
